The section of the Memorial that holds written records of war is called the Research Centre. The collections maintained by the Research Centre document Australian involvement in war and operational service. Additionally, these documents can provide information on the historical background, and the effects on Australian society, of the conflicts in which Australia has been involved.
While you can use this website to access the Research Centre’s digitised historic documents and records, this represents only a small proportion of the records we hold.
The Reading Room is a dedicated facility within the Memorial where we provide research assistance and access to the Research Centre’s non-digitised archival material.
